i want to bring in ed lavandara who is joining us from centennial, colorado. ed, walk us through the charges that he is faced with. >> sure thing, suzanne. essentially, james holmes has been charged with 142 criminal counts. 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, and essentially, that is doubled up on the number of victims inside of that movie theater. remember, 12 people killed an 58 people who were wound and taken to hospitals. now the legal reason behind that according to the paperwork we have received is that they were able to file double the charges on each of those victims, because number one, prosecutors say it was a planned attack, and premeditated and also because james holmes showed an extreme indifference towards the people he was killing, and that is that he did not matter who he was killing, but shooting indiscriminantly into the movie theater. because off that, that gives them the legal basis to file double the counts against james holmes. there is also one count of possessing explosives and one count which is a sentence enhancer becaus

and refrigerators and other items and they see it as, well, this president is actually doing something for us, and he is getting the votes. >> a trade off, too, because the people who are given the homes, they criticize the government, they take them away. >> well, the writing is on the wall, and every time we see one of the live shows in which the president gives away the houses, you see the people saying all of the most beautiful things that you can think of, and chavez is my commander, and he's my benefactor and so good for the people and so good, but not once have i seen anybody say anything wrong about chavez, and that tells you a lot. >> and he also recently awarded an apartment to a woman who became his 3 millionth twitter follower, and he is a big twitter follower. >> yes, he is wildly popular and the message is getting through to twitter again, and he did this, and he is rewarding somebody for being the 3 millionth follower. >> can you imagine if president obama or mitt romney were giving away homes on live television? >> no. >> thank you, miguel. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.co

and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their
we left it. >> and it sounds very much to us like that is the man who owned the home. we can't independently verify that because this was shot by the neighbor. the media was not allowed in. this is remarkable video. this is the first time we are seeing the damage first-hand as the families go back to the area. jim spellman is in colorado springs. we will talk to him later on about this. everything that is happening in just a little while, 5:30 eastern time. >>> heat as well as gusty winds are an issue for firefighters battling the wildfires near colorado springs. the weather conditions have kept some from going to see the conditions. for the one whose are going back fire officials are warning them to stay vigilant. >> as you repopulate these areas you will see smoke. you will not see the firefighters but they are there. >> the waldo canyon fire has destroyed nearly 350 homes and burned more than 1,700 acres. >>> temperatures rising and power lines down around much of the northeast. >> powers out. anything goes. >> i guess a light moment in what could be a very serious situati
from the depths of ocean. it is all "happening now." jenna: hi, everybody, we're glad your with us on a very busy news day. i'm jenna lee. we have brand new fox news polls on the election, on the economy and who voters would like to see on the republican ticket with governor mitt romney. jon: i'm jon scott. 110 days until americans head to the polls. what are we thinking about the state the race and issues affecting it right now? first when asked whether the obama administration has made the economy better or worse, 37% of respondents say the president's policies have made the economy better. that is a seven-point drop from march. meanwhile those who say the economy has gotten worse, jumping seven points over that same period to 49%. look at the head-to-head race. the president with a razor thin lead over governor romney. nearly unchanged from a year ago. that is not all these polls tell us. erin mcpike is national political reporter for "real clear politics" and joins us now. erin, see if you can explain that. you have more people saying the president and his policies have made th
on the attack against the president using really his own words instead of having to come up with a hurried vice presidential announcement. and, wolf, there are some tea leaves to read here. kelly aot said to be high on mitt romney's vice presidential search list, she is going to be appearing with mitt romney up in new hampshire tomorrow. the romney campaign announced that yesterday. wolf, i think it stands to reason that the campaign would not have announced this event, would not have said slooes going to be at this event up in new hampshire if they were going to somehow come out tomorrow and announce she's the vice presidential running mate. so i think that's an indication that perhaps this window before he goes to the olympics is closing and that the vice presidential announcement will come off the olympics are over, wolf. >> they haven't released his exact schedule yet. when he's going to be in london, israel, when he's heading back to the united states. he's going to poland as well. do we know any details about that? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that, yes, all three of those
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q
. the bank says to us, who is going to -- what customer of ours in west texas is going to wade through 100 or even 20 pages? host: this is from one of our viewers. dodd-frank is typical of what happens when the private sector misbehaves. guest: that is true. regulation is reactive. it is like you are fighting the last war. whitneys' to happen is set of incentives so financial institutions and other entities have been sentenced to be responsive to customers rather than to bureaucrats that they know they can charm. host: you can send us a, on our twitter page, join the conversation. you can also email's. good morning come independent line. caller: i think he explained it good. this is relative to the corruption between wall street and washington. this has been all over the internet about things happening, nothing being done about it. you have all of these corruption scenarios going on. congress says, we did not see it. they do not see it until the taxpayers have to pay for it. host: thank you for the call. tony says, is it true dodd-frank has generated a fourth of 13,000 pages of regulation?
own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston headquarters to keep hammering a comment made by the president last friday. >> if you got a busines
. for those of us who have had the pleasure and the honor of coming to know ryan well, this latest story is not at all surprising. it actually is quite in keeping with the character and actions of this superb, decent, selfless man, a man who i would call without question or hesitation the most excellent foreign service officer and one of the finest public servants i have ever known. for the past 41 years, ever since he was a junior diplomat serving in prerevolution iran, ryan crocker has consistently answered the call to serve in the most challenging, the most difficult but also the most important posts in the world. they were the places as it turned out where america needed ryan crocker the most, and he has always served with distinction. he was a young officer in lebanon when our embassy was bombed. ryan crocker helped to pull his colleagues from the rubble and then got back to work. he was one of the first civilians into afghanistan and iraq after the recent wars, helping to re-establish our diplomatic presence in both countries after decades. he returned to iraq during the surge, and
to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal
opinion. our phone lines are open. you can also join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an email. the question on members' personal health, how much should you know? 202-737-0001 for democrats. 202-737-0002 if you're a republican. you have a line for independents, 202-826-0205. a couple of stories related to this, first from the "chicago sun-times," former representative, now the mayor of chicago, rheaume emanuel, weighing in on all of this, saying don't rush jackson's return to congress. he added his voice, writes the "sun-times" for those representing privacy for an ailment most recently described as a mood disorder, and then poking fun at congress, why should he get back to work, congress does no work. the last time i checked, they had their second repeal of the bill, why rush? the story from the "chicago sun-times." house leaders offering support as jackson jr. treated for a disorder. spoker of the house john baners was asked about it yesterday saying we hope he gets well soon, and frankly, he hopes he gets back soon. the democratic leader in the house is nancy pelos
's their response? >> they're working with us. [laughter] >> so it's a legitimate reason -- >> the current structure, mr. chairman, that the way the data's pulled in and then analyzed, it's, for example, 2012 we're looking at 2010 data. and so how does that become actionable and meaningful when you get your report, it's really just tied to an update in finances and not to clinical care. and we want it tied to clinical care so we can make actionable statements about patients. so that's the problem using claims data that then has to be aggregated when that year's closed out and analyzed. and by the time it's analyzed and presented, another year's passed. that's why we're looking at other data systems that get to the target you're asking us to get to, and if we had these other, access to these other data systems, they're realtime. they allow us to say that happened last month. that can't happen this month. we need to put an action plan in place to correct that. that's part of the big disconnect, and it's not for lack of trying. it's just the wrong data set to drive the goal that we're trying to reach.
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
did the u.s. perg title it campus debit card trap? you guessed it. many are charged unreasonable fees that are costing them and the country millions of dollars. according to the report, 15 financial institutions have debit or prepaid card contracts with 878 campuses that serve more than nine million students. it's a big business. 42% of all students nationwide go to school on these 878 campuses. it's a lucrative business for financial institutions. there's a lot of money to be made from fees on college debit cards especially when you start charging fees on the billions of dollars disbursed each year in federal student aid. so the federal money is passing through these cards to the students, the financial institutions are making money in the process. as the u.s. perg report showed some of the fees are clearly unreasonable. one of the most egregious is a per-transaction fee on students for students for using a pin number instead of a signature. one of the largest campus debit card companies, hire one, currently charges students 50 cents every time the student enters his pin number at a

us our national security. >>shepard: yesterday, a bill was approved to crackdown on the leaks putting restrictions on which members of the intelligence committee can talk to the media. two u.s. attorneys are investigating how the sensitive information made its way to newspaper articles about cyber attacks on iran and the would be underwear bomber. this week the former massachusetts governor romney accused president obama of using the leaks to political gain. the white house called that accusation an "insult." wendell is like at the white house this afternoon. has the administration said we are positive the leaks did not come from inside the administration? >>reporter: no. press secretary carney pointed out there are two investigations trying to pin down where the leaks came from but ruled out the president's involvement saying the president finds it preposterous to suggest the white house would leak the information for gain. the president is the most important consumer of classified information. >> he has to make life-and-death decisions based on that information all the time. he thin
of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american

away from the election. and joining us this morning is senator dick durbin. i want to put the gdpp fod -- g figures the gross domestic product figure, because it has been up, but not to the point where it can bring down unemployment. that is a 3% growth rate, but we have a 1.5% in the last quarter. no president in modern history has beeen re-elected with these kinds of numbers and what is your concern? >> well, ki say this, more than 26 straight months of private sector job creation, and many of the jobs that we have lost in the public sector the president has appealed to congress to help him to make sure that there are firefighters and teachers and we have had no cooperation from the republicans, because they are determined to keep the unemployment numbers low. >> you know how this works -- >> well, the president accepts responsibility, but he also believes we are on the right track and returning to the economic policies of the bush administration which romney endorses would plunge us back into a recession situation where we are giving tax breaks to the wealthiest in america and seein
also find us online at twitter. we can share that on the air. you can also join the conversation on facebook by looking for c-span or e-mail us. host: here's our question for you this morning. what do you think of president obama's decision to push for a one-year extension of middle class tax cuts? here's the associated press reporting. the president is launching a push to extend tax cuts to the middle class as he seeks to shift the election year economic debate away from the dismal jobs market and toward the issue of tax fairness. obama in an address from the white house today will call on congress to pass a one-year of tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year. that's according to a senior administration official. the president's appeal to the middle class voters is aimed at drawing a contrast with republican rival mitt romney and congressional republicans. the house g.o.p. is expected to make its own push this month for an extension of all the bush era tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year, including on wealthier income earners. the president opposes extendi
that paterno did not know that sandusky was a child predator. joining us live from philadelphia, cnn contributor and patriots news reporter sara ganim. you've been covering this story from the very beginning. this is a panel that reviewed more than, what, 3.5 million documents, held 430 interviews before coming up with this report. how does this break down in terms of who was most responsible? >> well, judge louie freeh said it comes down to these four people, joe paterno, the president graham spanier and those two penn state officials who have already been charged with lying in the criminal investigation, tim curley and gary schultz. when he was asked about other employees, or more wide cover-up, he denied any other employees are responsible for actively concealing the allegations against jerry sandusky. he did lay some blame on the board of trustees for a lack of oversight. he said they were simply too lax and let a couple of people get away with too much power and not enough responsibility to report. but as far as other people that they lay blame for actively concealing jerry sand
